Highfield Priory Day Nursery is situated on the school site and benefits from the best of both worlds. Whilst retaining an intimate home-from-home atmosphere in the Bungalow, it has access to all the school facilities and the children are able to enjoy walks (including babies in prams and pushchairs) around the school nature reserve: Highfield Haven; visits to the school Library; Dance lessons in the Performing Arts Studio and PE and Games in the Sports Hall and on the Sports field.
The Nursery children have their own outdoor play area which includes a tricycling/ scootering area, a den area, two play houses, a billy goats gruff bridge and a castle! It is adjacent to the school playground and the older children are an endless source of fascination to the younger ones! Older siblings are able to chat to their younger brothers or sisters at Playtime and Year Six monitors often help out in the Nursery and play with the younger children. By the time our Nursery children are of school age, they are excited by the prospect of being like the bigger children and there are already many familiar and friendly faces in the playground.
"The setting has outstanding resources, both indoors and out, which provide children with a wide range of interesting and stimulating learning opportunities."
